In the smartphone community, there is no doubt: the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus are considered the best Android phones of 2017. They were the first mobile phones from Samsung with the famous Infinity Display. Besides this beautiful, front-filling screen, the flagships are of course also equipped with the latest and most powerful hardware that you could get at that moment for your money, such as the Exynos 8895 and Mali-G71 GPU. It is therefore not surprising that the devices have been awarded several times.
The expectations for the Samsung Galaxy S9 are therefore high. Almost daily we hear new details about the upcoming flagship. The last few weeks it seems almost nothing else to go. Today we catch sounds that you can charge the device wirelessly. Maybe it sounds like an open door: you could also charge the Samsung Galaxy S8 (Plus) wirelessly. So strange is it not that his successor can do that too?
That may be the case, but we have a very strong indication that the rumor has not been sucked out of the big thumb. Samsung recently filed a patent application with the European patent and patent office for the term DeX Pad. The application can be found in the database of the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO).
Samsung Galaxy S9 Specifications
According to the rumors, the device again receives a 5.8-inch Infinity Display with WQHD + resolution of 2960 by 1440 pixels and 18: 9 aspect ratio. In the US, the device is controlled by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 and in Europe, the flagship is supposedly equipped with the Exynos 9810 Octa-core processor. Rumor has it that the Galaxy S9 once again gets one 12 megapixel camera. His big brother, the Galaxy S9 Plus, probably gets two. Several times we have seen leaked photos and concept images of the device with a dual-camera setup.
As we now well Samsung, the latest flagship is also dust and waterproof thanks to IP68 certification. The speakers come from AKG, an audio company that is part of Harman. Also, Bluetooth 5, NFC chip, USB-C connection and fingerprint scanner are of course. Samsung has reportedly placed this sensor under the primary camera. Now we find it to the right of the main camera. There Samsung received a lot of comments last year. Furthermore, we have heard noises about a 3200 mAh battery that supports Quick Charge 3.0. And as expected price of Samsung Galaxy S9 around $900 and S9+ about $1100 and available for purchase in 2nd half of this year.
